What's a Wreck?

A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate - you name it. A Wreck is not necessarily a poorly-made cake; it's simply one I find funny, for any of a number of reasons. Anyone who has ever smeared frosting on a baked good has made a Wreck at one time or another, so I'm not here to vilify decorators: Cake Wrecks is just about finding the funny in unexpected, sugar-filled places.

Now, don't you have a photo you want to send me? ;)

Dental Training

Hi, I'm here to pick up a cake? It's the "Happy Birthday Brittany" one.

Ah, no, see, that second "Birthday" should be "Brittany."

 

 No no, this has Brittany twice. I need "Happy Birthday" on it.


Ok, now you've just combined them into one word. There should be three.

 

 You don't mind if I bang my head on this counter here, do you?

 

 Look, forget the name. Could you just give me a cake that says "Happy Birthday," with sprinkles on it? Yes? Great. Thanks.

Thanks to Anony M., Bethany C., Angela A., Margo R., Brian R., & Kasha D.  for the dental training. (Because it's like pulling teeth? Eh?)

The Letter Of the Flaw

This redditor discovered there's more than one way to interpret "sprinkles on the side."

Ha!

(One of the few times when the wrecked version actually required more effort.)

 

Dae's local bakery offers number-shaped donuts for birthdays, so she ordered "20 number 6 donuts with pink icing and sprinkles."

Oooh. SO CLOSE.

 

Cory S. asked for a cake that was half white, half chocolate, but made the mistake of not specifying WHICH half: 

 Er...

 

I feel ya, Jean-Luc.


And finally, Lindsay A. was very clear when she ordered these two cookies cakes: "Happy Birthday Jessica" on one, and on the other, "Happy Birthday Alan."

(I'll spare you the headache: they both read "Happy Birthday Jessica and the other Alan.")

Annnnd....

 DOUBLE FACEPALM!

 

Thanks to Libby, Dae S., Cory S., & Lindsay A., who I'm sure can't stop staring at the wonky Picard arm, either. Right? Please tell me I'm not the only one.
